They tessellate because one of their interior angles is exactly 120 degrees provided that it is a regular polygon. Since this is exactly a third of a full circle, three of… them will always create a 360 degree angle in the center. When you repeat this pattern, they form multiple 360 degree angles, which forms a tessellation. This is true with any polygon that has an interior angle that is a factor of 360, and this is why pentagons do not tessellate. (MORE)

Quadri- = four. Lateral = side. A quadrilateral means a figure with four sides. A hexagon has six sides. Therefore, a hexagon is not a quadrilateral. Quadrilaterals include s…quares, rectangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, and any other random figure with four--and only four--sides. Polygons include all many-sided figures, including hexagons.

A hexagon is any two-dimensional polygon with six sides and six vertices. If it is a regular hexagon, then opposite sides are parallel and each of the angles equals 120 de…grees. The six interior angles then add up to 720 degrees (MORE)

A hexagon is a six-sided figure. Cut an equilateral triangle out of a piece of paper. Chop off little equilateral triangles at each tip of the triangle. What you have is a hex…agonal piece of paper. Draw around it. (MORE)

No, a rhombus is a special type of quadrilateral. Rhombuses ALWAYS have 4 sides. A hexagon has 6 sides.

There is no general formula as it depends upon the exact shape of the hexagon. To calculate the area would involve splitting the hexagon into regions which are shapes for …which the area can be calculated (eg triangles). For a regular hexagon, it can be split up into 6 equilateral triangles by drawing in the three diagonals between opposite vertices - its area is then 6 times the areas of one of these triangles. If the side length is s, its area is given by: height of one of the triangles is found by Pythagoras to be (√3)/2 s = 6 × (½ × s × (√3)/2 × s) = (3√3)/2 × s² (MORE)

In Volume

The volume of a standard hexagon can be given by the product of 6 times the length of one side of the hexagon and the height. Note that for a hexagon to have volume, it mu…st have another dimension that is height. (MORE)

A hexagon can be drawn either with a compass or round object, or free hand. A hexagon has six equal sides and six equal angles. For a perfect hexagon, a compass is recomme…nded. * * * * * While a hexagon does have six sides and six vertices, these need not be equal. If the sides are all equal AND the angles are equal, then the hexagon is a regular hexagon. (MORE)

It is a hexagon all of whose sides are of equal measure. Note that it need not be a regular hexagon since the angles need not be equal (in the same way that a rhombus has four… equal sides but its angles are not all the same). (MORE)
